KUPIANSK
WAR IN UKRAINE
WITH ❤️ FOR UA

Kupjansk in the Kharkiv region has experienced both occupation and liberation. The city is located directly on the front line in eastern Ukraine. Russian troops captured Kupjansk in the early days of the full-scale war against Ukraine in February 2022. Due to its important railway junction, the city was a significant logistical center for the Russians.

Kupiansk is situated 120 kilometers from Kharkiv, a city that has endured severe shelling and bombing since the onset of Russian aggression. The city, home to over 25,000 residents, is intersected by the Russian gas pipeline.
In the initial days of the full-scale invasion, Kupiansk's Mayor, Hennadii Matsehora, negotiated with Russian forces, allowing them to enter the city without resistance. He claimed that the Russian battalion commander presented him with an ultimatum: either surrender the city or face a storming.
